The very best thing you could do is to post your system specifications. From what I can see, you are using a Dual Core machine with 1024MB RAM and a 64MB graphics card. What graphics card is it? ATI? Nvidia? Are you using the official drivers from their respective vendors? If you happen to have one of those onboard graphics card, I am not sure you will be able to run Quake 4 at all...
